On one of the few calm days while the USS Davenport was on weather patrol in the North Atlantic near Greenland, the Captain asked the ship's photographer to board a motor lifeboat and take a series of photos of the ship. This starboard profile is one of those pictures taken by S1/c Don Roban (note the "weather shack" that had been installed in place of Gun No. 3 near the rear of the ship to facilitate the launch of weather balloons).
